With winter dragging on, Deer season over and Turkey seeming to be forever away lots of hunters are looking for something to do outside. Well if you want to improve both your Turkey and Deer hunting and work on your woods craft you may want to take up Predator hunting. Removing a top predator like a coyote or bobcat will help to ease the stress of winter and rearing young on your game. You can also walk away with some very nice trophy hide for your home, cabin or man cave.
While we all want just one more gun you probably already own one that will work fine for this type of hunting. Either the rifle that you hunt deer with loaded down with a lighter bullet or your Turkey gun with a Predator load in it will do the job. You also have your camo and the scent control system that you like to use for your big game but the one thing that you are going to need is a set of calls or an e-caller. I have been doing this for a while and use both during most of my hunts but find myself leaning more and more to my e-caller. It never freezes up, it gets the sound away from where you set up helping to reduce the chances of getting busted with your movements and with the new units you can always have a new set of calls to help fool call-shy predators. Some units can even be used with remote controlled decoys which also help draw attention away from you and keeping your prey focused on the caller. While there are a bunch of calling systems out there, all of them are going to do the same thing but that does not mean they are all equal. The remotes and the distance they carry, decoy control and expandability of calls would be just some of the features to be looking for.
Feel free to come in and talk with our trained hunting staff to help get the right caller for you.
